My Conceal Carry License expires soon so I went to the Illinois State Police website to renew it.  I basically paid $153.38 to buy a Constitutional Right, this is wrong in so many ways.  I can understand a Fee for plastic license, the 5 minutes the State Employee spends making it and the handling/postage. But the required FBI Background check costs nothing to the State.  You spend your entire life being Law Abiding and have to pay $153.38 and wait up to 120 days to be able to Lawfully protect yourself.  Its Extortion if you ask me.

being a RIGHT, means that you DON'T  have to pay to exercise it..... I wonder if other states have so much extortion and silliness? and as an employee of the state, thanks to the last Gov., I have had raises of exactly $0.00 over the past 4 years.  Flatly refused to negotiate with the unions, while dues continue to rise..... as did the state income tax rate
my check has been going down and down and down some more.  where does that $153 and change that you had to pay, GO???? I have FOID but no CC.

If your dues went up, I'd be investigating that...  Dues are a small percentage of your pay determined by the Bylaws of your Union.  If your pay didn't rise then neither should your dues.
